Behind the Mask – Tales from the Id
Edited by Steve Dillon, the third anthology in our Things in the Well series, which so far includes stories by Clive Barker, Ramsey Campbell, Christopher Golden, Charles Dickens, M.R. James, H.P. Lovecraft, G.M. Hague, Steve Vernon, Lee Murray, Mark Allan Gunnells & more.
Having announced Clive Barker and Ramsey Campbell as anchor authors, establishing our archetypes, we’re searching for more talented writers, best-of-breed tales of terror, new supernatural tales, psychological thrillers, creature features, all involving masks – physical or otherwise!
Word count will typically be expected to be in the region of 6-10,000 words. We’re paying a flat rate of $50 (AUD) for this anthology, and a print copy post the initial publication. You will retain rights. More details on request.
Submit by email to Masks@OzHorrorCon.com, with the subject «Masks»
Deadline: End of November 2017.

We will have further announcements cosmetic surgery to make on the Oz Horror web site, but meanwhile we would like to announce archetypal stories that align to the theme from two of the world’s best in the genre:
Clive Barker’s Sex, Death and Starshine
We have included another Clive Barker tale as an archetype that represents one of the best and in our opinion most under-rated horror short stories from Barker’s seminal Books of Blood collection.
Ramsey Campbell’s The Other Side
Ramsey Campbell is undisputed grandmaster of paranoiac, creepy tales of insidious terror. He has won many major awards and received numerous accolades over 5 decades, and we are delighted to present an archetypal story by Ramsey Campbell, appropriate to the theme of Behind the Mask – Tales from the Id
Thanks, and I look forward to your submission. – Steve Dillon, September 2017
